Roundup: Star Wars authors consider future movies, Ewan down with a return to the desert

X-Wing: Mercy KillPonders. Christian Blauvelt asks eight Star Wars authors (Drew Karpyshyn, Paul Kemp, Troy Denning, John Jackson Miller, James Luceno, Michael Reaves, Christie Golden and Aaron Allston) what they’d like to see in Episode VII and the other new films. Lots of love for the EU and female characters, naturally, which is more than I can say for most of the other wishlists that have been popping up daily.

Spin-offs. Ewan McGregor continues to voice his willingness to return as Obi-Wan. “I don’t know what he did in the desert,” he tells MTV. “We could make up some stuff.”

Superfans. Kevin Smith is (still) very excited. Though his casting for a young Han Solo is… the worst I’ve seen yet. Hopefully for the LULZ.

  1. Well, baby Luke could be taken by a krayt dragon (it’s about time we saw one of those in action) and old Ben could safe him. If they tied that into the whole grumpy uncle Owen situation, it might actually be pretty good. A bit too much Tatooine I guess but still. And it would be kind of cool if that dragon skeleton was lying there because of Ewan. Uh, Ben!
    As long as Master Kenobi stays on Tatooine, they can do pretty much everything with him. I just don’t want to see him running around on some other world while he should be guarding Luke.
